I was concerned that the smaller boat would be too small if full with the
maximum 6 divers, but it was plenty roomy enough for our trip with 5 divers
plus guide and captain, I don't think one more person would have made it
feel cramped at all. Back roll entry, they bring the gear to you, no need
to walk around with gear on. Same thing when you get on board, climb up
ladder and sit right down and they take your gear off you. Easy breezy
diving. Just fall in and dive! Cathy did a good job as a guide, showed us
octopi, frogfish, flatworms, turtle, fish hunting parties. On the ride home
they stopped so we could watch a pod of dolphins. No rush, just a nice
group of people. Steve the owner was our captain, his wife, Pat, came along
too for the dive, all 3 Wanna Dive folks were pleasant to deal with.
Recommended.
